SUNDAY 2 OCTOBER 2022: WILLEM DE RIDDER

BROADCAST/LIVE EVENT

Willem de Ridder, (Den Bosch, 1939) is een ideeën-kunstenaar. In de internationale kunstwereld is De Ridder vooral bekend als FLUXUS kunstenaar, als organisator van festivals en de man achter de legendarische European Mail-order house.

De Ridder publiceerde taboedoorbrekende tijdschriften en produceerde controversiële Radio Art programma’s. Hij is de bedenker en regisseur van baanbrekende televisie en radio programma’s, zoals de eerste sexlijn samen met Annie Springle in de V.S en met Cora hier in Nederland.

Voor ons is de Ridder meester verteller! En we kijken ontzettend uit naar zijn komst, wij hopen jullie ook.

Voor radioworm zal de Ridder komende zondag 2 september zijn veel belovende sprookjes vertellen, en daarna een interview met Lieuwe Zelle doen. Niet te missen!

SUNDAY 28 AUGUST 2022: NEW SEASON!

BROADCAST/LIVE EVENT
1500-1700

Sunday 28 August 2022, to celebrate the coming season of radio, we share the afternoon with a list of Radio WORM luminaries: Lieuwe Zelle [Sound Experience], Niek Hilkman, Ege Sahin [RE-CHILDING], Virgil Westerhout, Juliana X** [Zuperstition], Mortiz Geremus [Electronic Merz], Robert Kroos [Grof Folklore] and Johanna and Vanita Monk [RE#SISTER]. Lukas Simonis plays host, introducing each radiomaker and finding out what they’ve got planned for their upcoming shows. 

Lieuwe Zelle: Initiator of Radio WORM 2.0, nude model, storyteller, nephew of Mata Hari and legendary radiomaker. His twice-weekly Sound Experience is exactly that!

Niek Hilkmann: Charming, funny and always swinging, Hilkmann (of, among others, Kwartet Niek Hilkmann)  is one of the great mainstays of Dutch language alternative pop.

Ege Şahin is a composer, and performer of mostly acoustic and electronic experimental music. He hosts ‘re-childing’, a weekly radio program in RadioWorm, where every week a new guest is invited to improvise, explore, and discuss sonic issues. For this expansion, he invites himself to play with his music toys in the form of a short improvised set while engaging with the audience through chat and interactive sound-making.

Virgil Westerhout: “Ik draai wat en hoe ik wil, met eventueel wat spraak tussendoor. Ik doe dit onder de noemers:  Tunes met Devon&Virgil; een programma waarin we beide “Humongous (big) Tunes” draaien (voornamelijk old Northern(UK)- of US-soul draaien) en Wunderbar Pirate Radio, dat is m’n show die niet in het programma voorkomt, maar gebeurd wanneer er genoeg djs in het barteam zijn en we nog wat (house/techno) willen draaien na de shift.”

Juliana X: Zuperstition is love on the dancefloor: A house and techno phenomenon that was founded in 2019 by Juliana X in Leeuwarden, and is now a queer-collective that creates memorable music and performance arts events: [check out their playlists here](https://zuperstition.nl/) to prepare!

Grof Folklore: Balkan Keyboards: Het elektronisch keyboard speelt een prominente rol in de uitvoering van hedendaagse volksmuziek wereldwijd. In deze aflevering van Grof Folklore neemt Duckfood jullie mee naar de Balkan om een aantal grove keyboard virtuozen aan jullie voor te stellen. Enigszins over de top. Grof Folklore immers.

Electronic Merz: Just as Kurt Schwitters founded Merz-Kunst as a liberation from conventions,  Electronic Merz encompasses a broad field of electronic music. Some episodes are driven by conceptual narratives, others just plain freestyle dj-ing. Expect Berlin School Ambient, 90’s Techno, Jungle and whatever other experimental electronics imaginable.

Vanita and Johanna Monk are musicians, writers, and visual and performance artists based in Rotterdam. Vanita’s seven-decade musical journey has been one of ongoing sonic radicalization, from classical piano to elemental vocals and industrial guitar noise. Johanna’s playing (clarinets, saxophones, little instruments and electronics) combines the drive and invention of the avant-garde with a melodic sensibility that betrays her roots in folk music. Together they have also continued to develop new ways of unifying prose, poetry and storytelling with creative music and visual performance. They regularly collaborate within other settings, notably in the feminist electronic noise trio Boterklontje (with Linda Nijboer), and the electroacoustic improv projects Monk, Ernsting & Monk (with drummer Philipp Ernsting) and Oxygen Tank (with percussionist Friso van Wijck). Today they will be representing the Rotterdam feminist experimental music community RE#SISTER, of which they are both founding members.

FRIDAY 11 FEBRUARY 2022: THE SIDE ENTRANCE TO THE SOUND STUDIO / VERYON WESTON, TISA N. HERLEC, LUKAS SIMONAS

BROADCAST/LIVE EVENT
1500-1700

In a 2-hour special of The Side Entrance, this week’s Sound Studio residents Veryan Weston, Lukas Simonis and Tisa N. Herlec, join together with keys and strings and words; knowledge, groove and poetry. As always on The Side Entrance, this promises to be a journey into the unknown where we expect the unexpected to blossom!

This will be the first time the three will have worked together, a fresh first encounter. They’ll play live sounds, discuss their processes and thoughts on improvisation, composition, creativity and imagination. And, of course, collaboration.

Sunday 13 February: Peggy Verzett: Snow Eggs book launch with Lieuwe Zelle

BROADCAST/LIVE EVENT
1500-1700

Lieuwe Zelle invites poet Peggy Verzett for an on-air and in-person launch for her new poetry collection Sneeuweieren/Snow Eggs, published by Jap Sam Books (Prinsenbeek).

A cookbook-that-doesn’t-fit-the-genre, Sneeuweieren/Snow Eggs presents seven dishes for different mental states. It’s a cookbook that harks back to alchemy. Because the imperative mood is so annoying and needs to be exploited. Because the world of the psyche has endless contents that all want to feel they’re being fed.To launch this bilingual edition, translated from Dutch to English by Pim Wiersinga and designed by Paul Bogaers, Peggy and Lieuwe make a soundscape from a recipe; play synths; and talk.Peggy Verzett (1958) is a poet, painter and singer. She made her debut at publishing house Van Oorschot in Amsterdam, with Prijken die buik. In 2010, Vissing, was published by Querido. Haar Vliegstro, appeared in 2016. Her fourth collection of poetry will be published in 2022. ‘Poetry can communicate before it is understood’, said T.S. Elliot. This quote has become her artistic mantra; sometimes hermetics as well as supple playfulness are present in her work.
